The Order of San Carlos

The Order of San Carlos is an honor society for pilots who have achieved the rank of Private Pilot.  The Order of San Carlos was formed to mark the importance of the moment at which a pilot is certificated, to acknowledge in a formal way the privileges bestowed on the individual by the flying community and to promote a sober understanding of the responsibilities the pilot will forever be shouldering, and meets throughout the year to induct new pilots into our ranks.  The event includes a formal ceremony, during which the new pilots swear an oath of safety before their families and fellow pilots, followed by food and drink and celebration as the other pilots of the Order welcome in their newest colleagues.
